Main Thought
Life doesn't move in a straight forward direction.  But it is always at the turn in the road where God is most visible to us.

Questions
  • Is there something about your life that you would like to change?
  • Is there something about your life that your friends and family would like you to change?
  • Is there a change that God wants you to make?
Lessons
  • Real change can only come from the Creator of our lives.
  • As much as we talk about change, the only changes we are really interested in are the ones we control. God has other ideas.
  • Whether we realize it or not, our understanding of God determines everything we believe and how we live our lives.  
  • For most of us, conversion begins in a moment, but over a lifetime.  
  • Everything we do here at church is only a vehicle to carry us to God.  The point is not to get enamored with the vehicle. 
  • Real change in our lives comes not from what we know, but whom we know.  And knowing more of the love of God will always lead to the best changes in our lives 
  • When your life has been interrupted – not just turned, but turned upside down – have the courage to be quiet long enough to look through the interruption prayerfully, asking for a glimpse of God.
